Six years ago, a silly little blog called MArooned was born. Six years ago, I left the comfortable surroundings of Toys in the Attic (doesn't look like Ricky's keeping the blog part up any more, a pity) to start my own blog and see if I could make a go of things solo. I'll always have a fond spot for my time as co-blogger at Toys, and consider Ricky a close friend (even if we haven't managed to meet up in meatspace. Yet.)
According to Blogger, I've had 47,614 comments published on 7,338 posts over the past six years. Not bad for a guy who still doesn't think of himself as a writer. I've published over a hundred product reviews, and had nearly two dozen articles published outside of MArooned - including a print article! According to Sitemeter I've had over 2.2 million unique visits over the past 6 years.
Thanks to everyone that sends me articles, from DGC stories to stupid things MA politicians to do the crazy and wild stuff. I can't thank you folks enough - nearly 400 Dead Goblins and growing every week; political stories to get my blood pressure up; the latest news on the Batmobile... I can count on a lot of folks to provide me with awesome blog fodder.
Six years down, Lord alone knows how many left - but they ain't gettin' rid of me yet!
That is all.
